Nice thread start, Chuck, thanks for posting the charts.


On the D3 transfer thing-- I think your mistake was in not reading the same web page I did. The one that lists Football, Basketball, and Baseball as the only not eligible D1 sports for a one time transfer exception. It leaves off Men's Hockey for some reason. If the NCAA and everyone else would just read the same page I did there would be no problem!

As it stands the only real way is if a student athlete has earned a degree and still has eligibility left. So that probably moves the chances for something like that happening from my original 1% thinking down to .01 %. On the other hand I have a 14 year old daughter that I feel could probably earn a degree in philosophy or something over the summer.

XYZ points out that transfers also can lose a year of eligibility. That is true, although it depends. In some cases the year in residence can be counted as a red shirt year, preserving actual playing years.

In any case I still see a much bigger need at a D yet this year than anything. Even if things go well injury wise this year, with Berkovitz a bit of a question mark yet for next year, having another D with a year under their belt can only be a positive I'd think.

DPlaya brought up Brett Gruber as a prospect to pursue. I like that fact that he's a goal scorer and not just a set up guy. On the other hand at 5'7" he's still a bit of a question mark. Small guys can certainly play, (Grimaldi, Johhny Hockey, etc.) But for everyone of those guys there's quite a few that can't cut it at the next level physically. Anecdotal, but if you look into the top 20 or so BCHL scorers that moved on to NCAA last year, the ones that were really able to contribute were the guys that were 6'+ and 185# +. Guys like Landon Smith with 31pts. @ Q and Brad McClure with 29 pts @ Mn. St. last year. Some of the smaller guys had a harder time, which isn't to say they won't be good down the line. Cameron Hughes has the skills but he struggled a lot against bigger stronger players. He's going to be a star when his body catches up. (Hopefully this year) Small guys don't have the luxury of making as big of physical gains, so in a way, they have to be good enough to compete at the next level from the start. Is Gruber that kind of guy? I have no idea. But he certainly has been impressive this last year. Eaves has said he's going to revamp his recruiting philosophy a bit. Be interesting to see if that would include a guy like Gruber who it seems to me, wouldn't normally be his type of prospect.

Licari was a beast and he was a little guy. Same thing with Patrick Johnson. Not afraid to mix it up.

I think those kind of energy guys like that are great. I don't know why size is important, it's attitude and work ethic.

Nick Licari was a tank. Patty Johnson fell off a cliff imo when he got injured. Was never the same after.

Really appreciate the recruiting charts being posted! Thanks Chuck!

I assumed that much, especially if minnesota had offered for 2016. I just want to know if there is a chance he makes an impact ASAP.

And how are there still 2 spots to fill....

Here's a name: Mattias Goransson. I can't find where he's actually signed a NLI, which is of course the key, but he's committed to UMass- Lowell. 20 year old from Sweden, 6' 3" 195, played for JB Bittner at Tri City last year. 7g 21a in 57 gp. Being from Sweden he's probably very comfortable on a big sheet of ice. Perhaps the kind of D insurance policy UW could use?

I'd be very surpised if he hasn't already signed his LOI. If you're looking at potential committed players, think Ivy and/or kids committed for 2016 that can be brought in early. 2015 commits are all signed right now.

Right, but I tend to specialize in suggestions that are at best, 1% possibilities. Then if I ever hit on one I gloat for years about what a genius I am. Nobody really pays attention to the 99 times I was wrong anyway.

Btw- Do you guys remember that one time I predicted Troy Ward would be the next Caps coach? :cool:

According to Ryan Kennedy of the hockey news, Caleb Jones would have been a Badger if he didn't sign in the WHL.

So, that's a nice kick to the groin on a Monday.

A kick in the groin, sure, but at least a somewhat comforting one. Better to know that we were still on his radar and that we can still attract his level of talent.
